Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Claims Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Claims

Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Claims


In Australia, Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance is complicated because each state has its own statutory regime, while the market for CTP insurance is a national one.

At Barry.Nilsson., we have offices in all the major capital cities, which means we have a national capability, as well as state-based expertise, when it comes to managing CTP claims. We believe that this distinguishes us from other law firms specialising in compulsory third party matters.

Our teams of expert lawyers manage CTP claims both strategically and cost-effectively, setting us apart from other external legal providers.

Adding Value


We are very well known in the insurance industry for the quality of our training programs. Conducted through Elevista, the programs are aimed at the insurance, broking and risk management professional.

Our expertise in this area means we are well equipped to run custom-designed CTP insurance law seminars and workshops for our clients.

Claims Discussion Groups

We offer all our clients access to our in-house claims discussion groups. In these sessions, we meet with you at your office each quarter to discuss key files, how to improve claims management practices, and ways we can reduce costs or duplication, as well as emerging issues and broader industry or market trends.


Our lawyers are often seconded to our clients. This is something our clients say they value, because it means they have our expertise in their offices on a daily basis for an extended period of time.

We also encourage our clients to send staff to us on reverse secondments, as this ensures they become even more skilled in managing CTP claims.
